Silver versus black Rokinon 21mm f/1.4 e mount

The 21mm f/1.4 Rokinon/Samyang e lens comes in silver and in black. The silver one has a marking to the right of the 1.4 aperture, labeled 1.2. The black one ends with 1.4 on the aperture ring; no 1.2 markings at all.

So the silver lens seems to open a bit wider than its nominal f/1.4. Does the black version do the same?

Or are these two different lenses, versions; one maybe older, better or worse. Or are these identical except for their barrel markings?

Thanks!
